goats on the lamb -one day in norfolk

#1 Post by goat » Sun Jan 14, 2018 6:34 pm

HI folks

This Saturday the 20th I plan to make my way from east london up to Norfolk to see the olds. Was thinking of coming up earlyish and hunting down a few challenge locations. Anyone up for a meetup and a ride to a couple of the places on the list? I was vaguely thinking to meet at route 11 on the a11 around 10-10.30 having a coffee and something to eat and then heading awf around the great land of norfolk. All dependent on decent weather and the like, may be on my own or with my better half. I'm not a quick rider and don't mind riding with 125s, scooters, panigales, segways or whatever. Give me a shout if you're about.

cheers

Dominic

Which way are you coming up? M11 or A134?

Possibly a414, a10, a11. Looking to give the m11 a miss as it's misery to me. Open to suggestions on route and meet point of course, just hoping for a bit of sun (you never know!) and a bit of good company :cheers:

Sounds brilliant, but this weekend isn't good for me.
Hope you miss a few so we can meet up another time.

Looking increasingly unlikely with the weather coming in. need to ride back Sunday morning which is forecast as minus 2 in Norfolk. Another time perhaps.
